    Russell Brand funny or not?

    I've tried to like him...briefly, but ultimately cannot. After I found out he went to stage school that sort of swung it as I suddenly saw all the Ben Elton-isms and the other traits he's stolen from more talented comedians. I now just find him annoying in a 'wanting-to-be-edgy-but-trying-too-hard' kind of way. More of a ranting goth poseur.

    I think he's just annoying but I've heard from a couple of people that have been to watch him in stand-up that he's in fact very funny.

    I don't believe them

    Jimmy Carr on the other hand - going to see in Saturday. Now he IS very funny in my opinion

    I found him quite funny on the Big Fat Quiz of 2006 but ultimately I think he's just annoying.

    I want to dislike him but I think he can be funnt sometimes. Kind of like I want to hate Lilly Allen but I end up humming some of her song.

    Off to see Ricky Gervais on Friday night. I thought Animals was very funny but hated Politics.

    hope I am not offended

    Just this minute finished discussing his virtues with a teacher colleague who went to see him last night. He is very sexual in his aproach to the female audience who i am told, lap it up because he is so upfront about it. He is also very funny so my colleague tells me.

    Tickets went on sale for Gervais in Portsmouth for 12th April yesterday at 10am. I didnt manage to get any after trying for hours before it sold out. One thing I did notice though was at 10:05, there was a selling form Manchester on Ebay selling 6 of them for about £75 each (normal price £25)

    Oh the joys of touts

    I got mine for Sheffield at 10.05 on the morning. I think it was Ticketmaster or someone who were selling them and it wouldn't let me on but I managed to find my way directly onto the Sheffield City Hall website and pick my tickets for the 3rd row.

    I paid for them and was tempted to get some more but decided against it with Xmas coming up. I went back in 5 minutes later and the best seats available were in row X near the back.

    I don't think he's funny at all.

    Went to see him last month at Opera House in Manchester, and he was very funny, always liked him on Big Brothers Big Mouth as well.
